Today is ALL about Sofia’s playroom makeover. I am so excited to share with you the makeover that I completed for Sofia while she was away for two weeks this summer!
Ever since we moved into our home I knew I wanted to create a welcoming, fun space that is age appropriate for Sofia and her friends to hang out in. When we built our home I purposely had them hold on painting the walls in this room because I had other ideas in mind of what I would eventually do in here. All it took for this look was some wallpaper and a cute hanging swing and I feel like the room got an entire transformation! Also, as I have said before throw pillows with some great down filling inside can make a world of difference as well.
Let’s chat about the wallpaper I picked. I have been wanting to do some wallpaper in our house for quite a while now but their are so many patterns to pick from and once I learned about the peel and stick wallpaper I was sold! Peel and stick wallpaper is awesome. YOU GUYS it is SO SO easy to install and listen if you get sick of it in a month (kidding) or a year its not like you spent 12 hours installing it. Put it this way I did all of this by myself and Andy loved it because I left him alone while doing it haha. It comes right off and you are left again with a blank slate. This is the pretty pattern that I picked for the playroom. It is not too much color and pops perfectly with the couch and the rug that I bought back from Overstock on major sale. It is inexpensive and I thought the pattern was really unique.Here is the wallpaper I got. When I tell you wallpaper completely transforms an entire room believe me when I tell you it DOES and you will love the final look.
As for the swing that we added Andy installed this for me. He made sure to drill a hole into a stud we had in the ceiling so when you sit on it the weight sitting in the swing is not an issue. (The last thing we want is someone getting injured on this baby haha). We then went to HomeDepot and got some pretty rope to tie the swing to the ceiling and then tied the excess rope around the top of the swing to add an extra detail. This is the swing that we ended up getting . The best part is that it was under $40.00!
The other part of her playroom that I think works well for any room no matter the age are incorporating floating shelves. What is great about these shelves is you can put anything on them, books, awards, school items, pictures etc! You can get them really inexpensive on Amazon.com that is where I got ours!
I hope this inspires you to add a few pretty touches to a room in your home and leave your comments below if you have any questions on what we did!
Have a wonderful day
